    1

  • Measure your tape, and then rip the backing paper into three sections.

  • The first section will form the base anchor.

  • The second section will cover the achilles tendon and muscle tendon unit.

  • The third section will be stuck over gastrocnemius..

    2

  • Lay section one (your first base) under the heel with no stretch.

  • Put the calf into stretch.

    3

  • Lay the second section of the tape over the Achilles tendon with 50% stretch.

  • Take care after taping to mould the tape around the tendon.

  • Maintain a stretch on the calf.

  • Lay the rest of the tape along the belly of gastrocnemius with 0% tension.

  • Finish by rubbing the glue to activate the adhesion.
